Updated: McDonnell simply enjoys Iowa and New Hampshire in the fall, really

Anita Kumar

Gov. Bob McDonnell flies to Iowa to campaign Wednesday. Thursday, he heads to New Hampshire.

Yes, Virginia's governor just happens to be campaigning in the two early presidential battleground states. Don't think we hadn't noticed.

McDonnell is joining Govs. Haley Barbour of Mississippi and Bobby Jindal of Louisiana in Iowa Wednesday to get out the vote before next week's election. He and Barbour will fly to New Hampshire Thursday.

He and governors will travel to Wisconsin, Illinois and Pennsylvania this week. McDonnell spokesman J. Tucker Martin said the governor's schedule only allowed him to travel Wednesday and Thursday -- which takes him to Iowa and New Hampshire.

Is McDonnell considering running for president?

"He always wanted to see Iowa and New Hampshire in the fall,'' Martin quipped.

Updated, 2 p.m. Looks like McDonnell will have to wait to see Iowa for the first time. His plane was unable to land in the Hawkeye State due to a strong storm in the Midwest. Instead, he headed to Wisconsin.

And while Virginia burns, Nero is fiddling in Iowa.

I think you are mistaking him for Kaine, who was raising money for the DNC while Southern, virginia was in the middle of horrible floods. In fact, Kaine spend more time working for the DNC than he did Governor of Virginia.
